We support and encourage all children to become confident individuals and effective communicators.

Our Approach to Learning and Development


Being active and playing supports young children's learning and development. This is how children learn to think about and understand the world around them. At Waterloo Road we believe in following planning in the moment, where children take the lead in what and where they are playing. For example, some children learn better from being outside. Children need to be actively engaged in order to learn. This comes from following their interests in that moment. The staff observe where they can make a difference and extend the learning for the child in that moment.  




We are a committee run setting. The committee is responsible for the overall management of the setting and fundraising. Find out more here.
